Extended Day Programs
Our school age programs create communities for children and their families that are enriching, nurturing and fun. As active learners, children will grow in self-guided and structured play to learn environments. Play fosters imagination and challenges children to expand social, emotional and intellectual capabilities
Before-School Extended Day Program
The before-school program is designed as a gentle transition time from home to school. Children have the opportunity to read, finish homework, play board games or create artwork. Outside time and active games are also offered.
After-School Extended Day Program
The after-school program curriculum is built around themes that are of interest to the children. Within each theme, there are opportunities for all children to explore and experience activities that are meaningful to them. Our theme-based curriculum incorporates seven learning areas: language and literacy, mathematical thinking, scientific thinking, social studies, personal and social development, physical development and the arts. The afternoon is a blend of child initiated and teacher initiated activities including outdoor play, afternoon snack, group time, choice times, homework and reading time.
On days when schools have scheduled early dismissal or are closed, we provide a half or full day program. These longer days give us the opportunity to enhance our programming by planning special events, inviting specialists in to share their expertise or exploring the larger community on field trips.
